& Further Description of the Area
B. The Invitation to the crossroad of wilderness.
The still gently upward hike shown within the circle (B) includes the points (35), (38), (39), and constitutes both a crossroads of somewhat wild paths but also a beautiful rise in a ledge of some metres threshold. This crossroads is located just to the right of point (38), but regardless of the choice of the hiking paths within the loop point (B), all of these will soon contact the continued walk towards the higher positions.An intended clockwork provides direction and orientation assistance in the circle (B)
While this type of orientation assistance is compatible with visitors to foreign habits, other requirements are demanded to fulfil the tradition of the native population, who prefer to use their own orientation in the landscape of the revered past.
When considering the circle (B), the possibility arises of using it as a directional pointer of the type that uses the traditional dial of the pointer's intended tip as an excellent tool for finding otherwise hidden objects. Thus, at the intended direction set at 3:30, this shows a pleasantly elevated area just above the field (39). This some metre raised ledge is the site of a certain number of unique and older, native Juniper procera trees. Here are these furrowed Juniper trees towers awe-inspiring where they dominate the surroundings like a mighty crown just in the slope above the field (39).

Enchanting Forest to the East of View-point (16)However, this forest is somewhat enchanting, and as the paths end beyond its boundary, this can cause great difficulty for orientation. This original forest is captivating wild and consist of these more than 50 years old indigenous Juniperus procera trees that provide a unique contact to nature with somewhat exotic primaeval lushness and a great surprise, beyond what a visitor would usually expect in such proximity to the Capital. This native Juniper woodland (40) is massive in its appearance and stunning in vitality, with a perfect, lush and dense undergrowth.
Lost and Worried people
The Secure Way Back
To find out from this enchanting and beautiful original forest (40), a lost person only ought to follow its very apparent and gentle slope down the east of the valley and thus in short contact with the open environment and clear paths that quickly show where you are in the relationship with the rest of the Park. Besides, since muscular but elusive hyenas hide under the long shadows of the trees, the overall impression of this forest can be perceived as scary and entirely not harmless, and this to sensitive people with reduced health and mobility.
From viewpoint (16), provides resting places for picnics in social tranquillity and contemplation about the unique nature, which is facilitated quickly by the high point of view, even over the mist-veiled Capital far below the southern slopes. Much closer, the farmhouse is reminded and not far below even the chanting walls of Entoto Kidane Mehret Church (32).
